  1. Board Memo

Board Letter

California Forensic Medical Group (CFMG) has identified an invoice for Catastrophic Charges over the inpatient limit for an inmate during May 11-20, 2016. This memo is to provide background information and request that the Board approve payment of an outstanding invoice in the total amount of $117.47.


Since 2012, the County has contracted with an outside provider for comprehensive medical, dental, pharmaceutical services and cooperative mental health services for inmates of the County's Correctional facilities. The contractor is responsible for the provision of health care services to inmates from the time an inmate is committed to the custody of the jail until release of the inmate from custody. The program includes inmate medical screening, admissions evaluation, triage, sick call, care of medically fragile inmates, pharmacy services, psychiatric screening, suicide risk assessments, and the continuing care of identified health problems, detoxification and emergency services.


Recently, the Sheriff's Office was informed that we were responsible for one outstanding invoice from CFMG dated May 11, 2016. The Sheriff's Office fiscal staff has reviewed the invoice and verified that it has not been previously paid. As part of the Sheriff's Office contract with CFMG, it provides reimbursements relating to exceeding the catastrophic inpatient limit. Sufficient funding for this invoice is available in GL Key 662405.


It is, therefore, RECOMMENDED that the Board authorize payment to CFMG of an outstanding invoice in the amount of $117.47.
